    I certainly like the idea
    How does this perform? Is it like the Apex system or is it full on for all speeds?
    Is there any concern for front end parts needing attention if the system is strong and weakens parts?
    Website doesn’t seem to address anything and would be helpful if you could elaborate on the system
    Thanks

    this kit assists at the same rate all the time but it isn't so easy that it will put more stress on other steering parts.
    if you compare this kit to the setup that the Apex had you will find that the Apex would be easier at slow speed than our kit but when riding at trail speed our kit will assist more which in my opinion is more important than slow speeds. there is just the right amount of assist so you can still feel the feedback from the skis that you need but easier than the Apex so less fatigue while riding. this power steering kit is awesome when riding through those tight twisty trails

    If the motor fails does the steering revert to stock?

    Yes if the motor was to stop working it will still steer just without the assist

    Do you guys have any pics of it installed or better yet a video of the finished product? I searched high and low but couldn't find anything.

    I'm changing my center shock spring, if I still don't like the steering after that I'll be ordering your kit.
